- They arrive, and spend 20 minutes BS'ing with their bro over which lead singer of "Drowning Pool" was superior.
- 300 reps of bicep curls. More discussion with their bros over their favorite Affliction t-shirt.
- More extended rest.
- 200 more bicep curls.
- They never venture anywhere close to a squat rack or bench press for that matter.
- 30 minutes of rest programming their IPod.
- I am generally gone before I see the next step.
In all seriousness, thanks to many of you for some outstanding tips/suggestions in our previous workout threads. I have started using a pre-workout supplement and switched to Trutein protein mix at the suggestion of posters and both are working out great.
Hope some of our other members benefited from those threads. I was off the wagon this weekend but anxious to get back started today.

For some reason, I picture this as Dan Uggla's workout routine.
I have been able to achieve a rock hard body by doing one situp a day.
I get up in the morning that's half............................
I guess Shane thinks Yeldon will flip to Bama after he enrolls at Auburn. Brilliant. Sell those subscriptions, BOL.” - TIGER
Guys at my gym walk around and act like there built like Tarzan but lift like Jane. Couple that with an overly red complexion, and have a swollen lat syndrome. I have many more
Pre-workout supplements work extremely well for me.
btw the next step is to hit the sauna so they work up a sweat and look like they have worked out.
Guys that can bench press 300lbs, but can't squat 100lbs.
Seriously I see guys all the time with strong upper bodies but always skip leg days it seems.
These guys aren't interested in benching...much less that much weight. They pump away with light weights, look great and have crap for functional strength.
But yes, the squat rack is something I never have to wait in line for.
Dan is too stiff and muscled up. Think he would benefit from losing some of the arm bulk. He would also benefit from actually developing a selective eye at the plate.
The gym is THE quintessential breeding ground for some of the most time tested stereotypes known to man. I love when steroid guy asks me what I'm on, and they sarastically laugh when I tell them nothing........like its impossible to get in elite shape without juicing. I weighed 145 when I graduated high school, 8 yrs later I'm 220 and have never touched anything illegal. Proud of it.
Shane, have you encountered gay guy who fakes being on the phone in the locker room while he watches other dudes change clothes? If not, you will eventually.
Haven't missed a work out in years using same method. Coach Saban would be proud of my display of discipline.
Taking weekends off just not going to do the trick Shane.

Yup, all about the pump and the illusion of size. I've always wanted to be stronger then I look
BTW-rotate pre workouts so your body does not get used to if you have more then one
It is funny as hell. You are spot on for the most part except the bench press comment. Most meat heads max out on bench every day and then do bi's and tri's.
Why you would want to do steroids is beyond me. You are wrecking your body for extremely short term results.
Eat clean. Train Hard.
I don't see the three or four at the local Y do a lot other than stand around and cycle through variations of curls and as you said, tricep extensions or pushdowns.
We have a lot of over-40 (and even 50 and 60's) guys who are in great shape and hit the gym hard regularly. I leave my earphones in, blast music and tune everything out when I am there.
Just bought muscle pharm so far...how often would you switch out?
If you do squats and you don't play a sport you will regret it when you turn 40 and can't bend your knees. Running is enough of a leg workout.
Usually try to have at least 2 options on hand and rotate daily. If you have one just make it last till you run out and try another. I think I linked about 3-4 different options to you. Or just PM me again
Except he'd have an egg-sized dip in while lifting.

Going with moderate weight with proper form and full range of motion can be very beneficial and not damage joints or tendons. I think running on hard surface can be just as hard on joints over time
Just my 2 cents
"Seriously Bro.... It's like this new type of creatine and amino acid pre workout I've been slamming. Yeah... I don't know where my balls went or why I am screaming at that dude in the mirror with skinny legs....
This $hit is of the chain bro!"
Hey guys - I have a 14 year old son that just started playing high school football this year, 9th grader. It scares me to death he will find that wrong friend and try to cheat the workout program. We talk about things but I'm not in school these days.
My main question is should a high school kid use anything right now? Protein shakes, any of the supplements, before workout or after workout whatever? If some are safe and can even be benefit him....what are they? and maybe best what are they NOT.
THANKS so much. Maybe this is the thread to ask. I have to be gone for a while but will obviously be back on to see any responses. Any and all are very much appreciated as I have only a little knowledge of these things. TIA
*O and the kid is already a half inch taller than me at 14. He's about 6' 1/2" and most likely not done growing. Tall and slender at this point.

I agree - use good form and shouldn't have any knee issues. I have a gimpy left knee and have had no problems, in fact, I can tell a difference in less creakiness in my joints after strengthening them with squats.
Also - I still have your list of recommendations with the pre-workouts. Thanks man!
From my experience steroids and all kinds of stuff were rampant at my high school. If you raise a good kid he might be curious so good to educate but will be smart enough not to take part.
As far as supps, I would be cautious. Would not recommend any stimulants or creatine products. I would think that a protein, amino acid, and carb supp could be beneficial if he or you are wanting to gain weight. Don't over do as to much protein would not be needed
Btw. Make sure he knows there are no real short cuts in building solid real muscle. Takes time and proper lifting technique. Don't get caught up in numbers, learning the right form is the first step.

At 14 I would stick to chocolate milk and a good diet and save your money. Depends on who he plays for, they may feed him some muscle milk or other type of protein shakes as part of his workouts.
In all seriousness he shouldn't do anything but getting big on whole food sources of Protien and complex carbs (with some simple carbs/Protien after intense workouts). Try to cook meals in advance for him to take to school and make sure he gets plenty of fruits, vegetables, and Protien X 10000.... Try and keep him away from the processed foods and $hit people feed their kids today and watch him "takeoff."
When he gets to be 17-18 I would say he could start using some sort simple creatine and of course an amino acid support. But that would be it.
He will naturally have enough Test running though his body to make all of that clean food work for him.
